    October is

    · Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    · Disability Awareness Month

    · Bully Awareness Month

    Recruitment:

    We have a recruitment team that meets Fridays at 8am. We work together to plan open house events and staffing school visits. Our CDC, Rafael Roman, develops the marketing materials. Our magnet coordinator, Cherilyn Murray, facilitates the plan. We held our recruitment open house on October 14th. We held an early college mini fair on October 17. We host virtual tours on Wednesdays. Our goal each year is to have 300-400 applicants and accept 100 students.

    Grant awarded to NWCCA

    Early Childhood Education students worked with their teacher, Ms. Van Schaick, and our media specialist, Donna Hitchings, to write a Bright Ideas Grant to purchase children’s books that show diverse cultures and backgrounds. They won $2,000. The students will curate the list of purchases and present it as a PBL project.

    COVID: We have a system for monitoring students who are out due to COVID and those who are out due to quarantine because of exposure.

    Exposure is defined as being within 6 feet without a mask for more than 15 minutes. Based on guidance by Wake County, we are asking students to eat in the cafeteria in 15 minutes. Those who need additional time are isolated. Most exposures have been with off campus lunch students.

    Griffin’s Den: 

    A time for remediation. Students with an 80 or less report to Griffin’s Den. 1st period on Monday, second period on Tuesday, 3rd period on Wednesday, 4th period on Thursday. Club Day and Ready on Friday. Students who do not report to Griffin’s Den are assigned a lunch detention.

    I hope everyone had a good weekend.  We will see you Monday!

    Child nutrition services food supply update

    Nationwide food and supplies shortages have created uncertainty about the availability of items for school meal programs. We sometimes have short notice of unavailable items and replacements. In addition, we have unusually short staffed child nutrition teams. We will do all that we can to serve our planned menus however, substitutions may be necessary and menu variety may be limited. We appreciate your patience and partnership as we work to overcome these challenges. View our menus > wcpss.net/menus

     

    Transportation schedules are improving and an update on bus air conditioning

    We thank all of our bus riders and their families for their patience this week as we all adjust to new routines and contend with our bus driver shortage. Bus stop times will continue to improve this week and next as students settle into their schedules.  

    Please be sure your student is wearing a face covering when they are at the bus stop so they are ready to board the bus promptly. This will reduce stop times and help our buses stay on schedule.

    We have heard questions about air temperature on the buses. We make every effort to have buses as cool and comfortable as possible, but the size of the buses and the need to frequently open and close the door can make that a challenge on hot summer days. School buses can cool up to 20 degrees less than the air temperature, but you can expect the bus to be somewhat warm in the afternoon until temperatures drop below 90 degrees. Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.

     

    Principal Message 8/22/2021

    Principal Message 8/16/2021

    Parents, 
     
    Thank you!  We had an amazing first week with our students.  Our staff was beyond excited to see them in person. Thank you! I hope you had a great summer and I know we will have a fantastic school year. 
     
    Meet the Teacher! Our Meet the Teacher will be virtual.  There are videos available to view where each department chair explains the courses that are taught in their department.  There will then be links for you to, using Google Meet, drop in and visit your child's teacher. It is Monday, August 16, from 6-7pm. 
     
    Technology:  We will be giving Chromebook to students who do not have them beginning next week. Also, we will be replacing old or damaged Chromebooks.  We have an inventory we will use that was created last year as students checked out devices.  Please make sure your student brings their WCPSS device (laptop or Chromebook and charging device) every day to school so we can complete this process. 
     
    From WCPSS transportation:  Please know that this change will affect NWCCA buses in the afternoon.  As we get more information, we will share it with you immediately. 
     
    Bus driver shortage will affect morning and afternoon schedules
    The transportation department continues to experience severe bus driver shortages. Therefore, we will need to alter some AM and PM arrival times to load buses with more runs. We expect this will affect routes at most if not all schools, including existing bus routes at modified and year-round calendar schools, starting on Aug. 23. Starting on Aug. 23, all schools will need to be prepared to accept students 40 minutes before the morning bell and arrange for students to stay up to 40 minutes after the afternoon bell. 
     
    Please see the information below from child nutrition.  Please know that breakfast and lunch will be free to students all year. 
     

    Monthly breakfast and lunch menu PDFs will no longer be posted on our district website
    Menus will be available on our interactive website, MealViewer. On the MealViewer website, families can:

    • Set up multiple profiles at the schools of your choice
    • See any menu changes posted by the manager at each site
    • Choose menu items based on allergens
    • View nutrients for each menu item
    • Add nutrients for meals eaten, even partial meals
    • Submit ratings on your favorite items
    • Print menus
    • Learn more.
    Service Dog: 

    One of our classmates will be accompanied to school by a service dog. This is a unique experience for your child. I hope you feel the same and will encourage your child to embrace the opportunity and understanding of the wonderful role that service dogs play in our community. Please understand that he is a working dog and should not be petted or called out to. He is working to help our student.

    As always, please call  (919-247-4353) or email me, ebattle@wcpss.net, for help.

    May 24th: 3rd period exam

    May 25: 4th period exam

    May 26: Make-up exams

    Students who are taking EOC exams (Math 1, English 2, Biology, and Math 3) must attend exams in person at school.

    Students who are taking the following CTE exams (Principles of Business, Accounting 1, Sports and Entertainment Marketing, and Business Management) must take exams at school.

    Exams given at school will begin at 7:25 and end at 11:30.

    Teacher made exams will be given virtually.

    From WCPSS: Teacher-Made Exams

    · Teacher-made exams will be made available to every student in a course that calls for a teacher-made exam. For students who engage in the exam, their exam score will only be included if it supports a higher final average. For students who do not take the exam, their final average will be the average of Quarter 3 and Quarter 4 for semester courses or Semester 1 and Semester 2 for yearlong courses..

    · Teacher-made exams will be administered to students in a virtual environment. This will be the case whether schools are in Plan A or Plan B in order to ensure alignment with the fall semester exams.

    · Teacher-made exams that are project, portfolio, or performance based may be largely completed prior to the exam window opening, and that is permissible. Teachers may create projects or performance based assessments for final exams. If projects or hands-on assessments are utilized for final exams, schools must ensure that all students have access to the supplies, materials and equipment required to complete the project.

    End of Course Exams from Wake County:

    · All administrations of EOC exams must be in person as required by state policy. Students may not take EOC exams from home. Students in Virtual Academy must take EOC exams in person, on a school campus.

    · All students enrolled in courses with a State End-of-Course exam are expected to take the exam (including NCVPS and Virtual Academy). This also includes students repeating courses who received a COVID-19 EOC waiver in Spring 2020 (ex: student with an EOC waiver in Spring 2020 in Biology who is now taking AP Biology).

    Graduation: Because they have lifted COVID restrictions, we are able to offer one ceremony at Wake Forest High School at 6:30 PM. We are allotting 4 tickets per senior. Tickets will be given to students only if they have paid all fines and fees. Students need to turn in all chrome books, laptops, and texts that have been assigned to them in order to receive tickets. This information has been sent to students who owe items in multiple formats.

    For students who do not feel comfortable graduating as a group, we will have a graduation ceremony May 27th at 1pm at school. Students need to pick either the one at Wake Forest or the one at school.

     

    Laptops: If you are assigned a laptop, it must be returned by May 27. Students who have been assigned chrome books may keep them over the summer. However, if you have been assigned a laptop they must be returned. We have a list of who has checked out laptops and will contact you individually. If not returned, we will assign a fee to the student’s WCPSS account.

    Graduation: Congratulations Seniors! The time has arrived. Because of COVID restrictions, we are having 2 graduation ceremonies. Both are on the 26th of May. One is at 5pm and the next is at 6:30. We have had to change venues because the lights are not working in the Oberlin auditorium. We have moved to the Wake Forest auditorium and are grateful for their hospitality. It does hold less seats, so we must reduce the number of tickets to 4. We are graduating by program area. At 5pm, Business Administration, Culinary Arts, and students not assigned a program area will graduate. At 6:30, Early Childhood Education, Emergency Medical Science, and Information Technology will graduate.

     

    For students who do not feel comfortable graduating as a group, we will have a graduation ceremony May 27th at 1pm at school. Students need to pick either the one at Wake Forest or the one at school.

     

    Seniors: You will have to return all library books, textbooks and devices before you can graduate. Please bring in what you can now. We will collect them at graduation practice. You will not receive tickets to graduation or have access to transcripts until these items are returned.

    Laptops: If you are assigned a laptop, it must be returned by May 27. Students who have been assigned chrome books may keep them over the summer. However, if you have been assigned a laptop they must be returned. We have a list of who has checked out laptops and will contact you individually. If not returned, we will assign a fee to the student’s WCPSS account.

    Wednesday, April 14, 2021 is an asynchronous instructional day. However, all 10th grade students will take the PreACT test and most 12th grade students will take the ACT Workkeys test on that day. Students, please check your email for a message from Mrs. Horton with more information regarding these tests. Only students testing for these two exams will be permitted in the building on that day.

    From an e-mail sent to ALL sophomores from Ms. Horton.

    Good afternoon, Sophomores!

    The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction will soon be administering the PreACT assessment to all eligible tenth-grade students. The PreACT is a required test as part of the North Carolina’s school accountability program. NWCCA will be testing all tenth-grade students on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 7:25 am. This is an asynchronous school day, so only students completing testing will be on campus this day. Students should report directly to their assigned testing rooms after completing the health screening (room assignments will be sent in a separate email closer to the test date).

    The PreACT assessment includes a pretest portion that will not be available to students through the state test administration. Parents and students can, however, voluntarily access and complete the information that is included in this pretest portion and create an ACT profile at the following website. http://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/act-profile.html

    When the testing (approximately 3 hours) is complete, you will be able to leave campus before the end of the school day if you have a signed permission slip (attached). These permission slips can be turned in to the main office or a parent/guardian may send an email with permission to anlee@wcpss.net stating the specific day and test for which they are giving permission for you to leave.

    If you are a bus rider, busses will run on that day. If you are a virtual academy student and need transportation, please contact Dr. Riles at criles@wccpss.net, so he can assist you with this. Breakfast and lunch will also be available on this day in the cafeteria.

    If you have any questions or concerns about the PreACT, please contact our test coordinator, Mrs. Horton (chorton2@wcpss.net) or (919) 694-8650

    From and e-mail sent to SELECTED seniors by Ms. Horton:

    The ACT WorkKeys test will be given free of charge to all North Carolina students who are considered Career and Technical Education (CTE) completers. You are getting this email because you are a CTE completer (or will be at the end of this semester).

    WorkKeys is a required test as part of the North Carolina’s school accountability program. The WorkKeys assessment is designed to measure students’ career readiness as they prepare to enter the workforce. WorkKeys assesses students’ abilities in three core areas: Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents. Students’ performance in these areas is meant to demonstrate their abilities to potential employers through the use of standardized, quantitative metrics. There are four certification levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

    This test will be given to students at NWCCA on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 7:25 am. This is an asynchronous school day, so only students completing testing will be on campus this day. Students should report directly to their assigned testing rooms (room assignments will be sent in a separate email closer to the test date) after completing the health screening.

    It is important that students do well on this exam. In an effort to prepare for the exam, students may visit the following ACT WorkKeys website: https://goo.gl/v2rYHo to review sample items and take an online practice test.

    If you are a bus rider, busses will run on that day. If you are a virtual academy student and need transportation, please contact Dr. Riles at criles@wcpss.net so he can assist you with this. Breakfast and lunch will also be available on this day in the cafeteria.

    Cap & Gown units will be distributed to students following their WorkKey Assessment.

    When the testing (approximately 3 hours) and tasks (if applicable) are complete, you will be able to leave campus before the end of the school day if you have a signed permission slip (attached). These permission slips can be turned in to the main office or a parent/guardian may send an email with permission to anlee@wcpss.net stating the specific day and test for which they are giving permission for you to leave.

    If you have any questions or concerns about the ACT WorkKeys test, please contact our testing coordinator, Mrs. Horton at chorton2@wcpss.net or (919) 694-8650.

    Please also review the WCPSS guidance that was shared with families: · Read the Return to Campus Guide for families. · Read Student Accountability and Required Health Protocols and sign the acknowledgement page. If you’ve already completed this form, you do not need to do it again.

    Wednesday, April 14, 2021 is an asynchronous instructional day.  However, all 10th grade students will take the PreACT test and most 12th grade students will take the ACT Workkeys test on that day.  Students, please check your email for a message from Mrs. Horton with more information regarding these tests. Only students testing for these two exams will be permitted in the building on that day. 

    From an e-mail sent to ALL sophomores from Ms. Horton. 

    Good afternoon, Sophomores! 

    The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction will soon be administering the PreACT assessment to all eligible tenth-grade students.  The PreACT is a required test as part of the North Carolina’s school accountability program. NWCCA will be testing all tenth-grade students on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 7:25 am. This is an asynchronous school day, so only students completing testing will be on campus this day. Students should report directly to their assigned testing rooms after completing the health screening (room assignments will be sent in a separate email closer to the test date). 

    The PreACT assessment includes a pretest portion that will not be available to students through the state test administration.  Parents and students can, however, voluntarily access and complete the information that is included in this pretest portion and create an ACT profile at the following website.  

    http://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/act-profile.html  

    When the testing (approximately 3 hours) is complete, you will be able to leave campus before the end of the school day if you have a signed permission slip (attached).  These permission slips can be turned in to the main office or a parent/guardian may send an email with permission to anlee@wcpss.net stating the specific day and test for which they are giving permission for you to leave. 

    If you are a bus rider, busses will run on that day.  If you are a virtual academy student and need transportation, please contact Dr. Riles at criles@wccpss.net,  so he can assist you with this. Breakfast and lunch will also be available on this day in the cafeteria.  

    If you have any questions or concerns about the PreACT, please contact our test coordinator, Mrs. Horton (chorton2@wcpss.net) or (919) 694-8650 

    From and e-mail sent to SELECTED seniors by Ms. Horton:  

    The ACT WorkKeys test will be given free of charge to all North Carolina students who are considered Career and Technical Education (CTE) completers.  You are getting this email because you are a CTE completer (or will be at the end of this semester).   

    WorkKeys is a required test as part of the North Carolina’s school accountability program. The WorkKeys assessment is designed to measure students’ career readiness as they prepare to enter the workforce.  WorkKeys assesses students’ abilities in three core areas: Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents.  Students’ performance in these areas is meant to demonstrate their abilities to potential employers through the use of standardized, quantitative metrics. There are four certification levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.  

    This test will be given to students at NWCCA on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 7:25 am. This is an asynchronous school day, so only students completing testing will be on campus this day. Students should report directly to their assigned testing rooms (room assignments will be sent in a separate email closer to the test date) after completing the health screening. 

    It is important that students do well on this exam. In an effort to prepare for the exam, students may visit the following ACT WorkKeys website: https://goo.gl/v2rYHo to review sample items and take an online practice test.  

    If you are a bus rider, busses will run on that day.  If you are a virtual academy student and need transportation, please contact Dr. Riles at criles@wcpss.net so he can assist you with this. Breakfast and lunch will also be available on this day in the cafeteria. 

    Cap & Gown units will be distributed to students following their WorkKey Assessment.

    Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June, 2021 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for this extra funding next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits for the 2020-21 school year can be found at www.wcpss.net/Page/1849 . Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at MySchoolApps.com

    Good Afternoon Griffin Families,  

    As a reminder, North Wake will operate in remote learning until January 19. Live instruction will happen each day and students are expected to login to each teacher’s Google Meet as well as check Canvas for assignments, etc. We will follow the same daily schedule as in the fall. The schedule is on our website.Wednesday, January 13th, will be an asynchronous learning day for all students. On asynchronous learning days there is no live instruction but students are expected to log into their canvas accounts and complete assignments.  

    Materials drop off: If you were an adobe student in the spring and had a school laptop, please return it. We need to provide spring students laptops as well. Just come to the school, ring the bell, and we can meet you at the front door.   

    We are working to develop a date for a materials pick up.That date will be when staff are allowed back in the building.   

    Canvas Tech Tip:  

     See the link below. It is about the calendar tool on the left-hand side of Canvas that allows students to see a list or a visual of all the work they need to turn in (with due dates) for all of their classes in one place.  

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KWdiZufkmQg-rAYA2ar4NL2Elaix13Sm/view?usp=sharing 

    Please contact our testing coordinator, Carrie Horton, at chorton2@wcpss.net with questions about the PSAT. Students who are taking the PSAT will be notified. PSAT testing will take place on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.  We will begin the test at 7:30 am, and the test will take approximately 4 hours to complete (including directions and pre-bubbling). Unless a student has extended time, the testing should be completed around 11:30 am. Parents/guardians can check out students who are participating in the virtual academy when the student has completed testing.  Students who are staying until the 2:18 (regular dismissal) will return to their in-person classes after testing. 

    All required covid19 precautions will be observed during this testing session.  These include all students and staff doing the health screening before entering the building, everyone (students and staff) will wear masks, and at least 6 feet of distance will be utilized in the testing rooms between students testing. The largest testing room will only have 11 students testing, so we will be able to provide plenty of distance between students. 

    In preparation for the test, a paper student guide and practice test will be available for pick up in the main office on January 20th (when we return to in-person school).  However, students are encouraged to practice before then, please visit  

    https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/practice/full-length-practice-tests to download 2 different practice tests. This website also has testing tips and the same information that is shared in the student guide.  This will allow students to become familiar with the testing format and learn some useful tips to prepare for testing day. 

    When we return January 19: Planning to Ride the Bus? -If you are planning on having your student ride the bus to or from school, please complete the online Health Attestation form foundhere.  This form must be submitted before your child is permitted to ride Wake County Transportation.  One form must be completed for each child.  If you have any questions, please contact the school.

    Good Afternoon and Happy New Year Griffin Families, 

    We hope each of you had a wonderful Winter Break. Looking back on 2020, I am in awe of the work our entire community did to support learning for all students in an unprecedented time. I am grateful for the support of our families for both students and teachers through remote and blended learning. I love the energy students bring to the classroom, both in person and virtually. I am proud of the flexibility and creativity of the teachers in developing engaging instructional activities for each student.  I am thankful to be part of the North Wake Family and am looking forward to all that 2021 has to offer. May the new year bring health, happiness and growth for all. 

    As a reminder, North Wake will operate in remote learning until January 20. Live instruction will happen each day and students are expected to login to each teacher’s Meet as well as check Canvas for assignments, etc. We will follow the same daily schedule as in the fall. That is on our website. Wednesday, January 13th, will be an asynchronous learning day for all students. 

    Thank you to everyone for a successful end to the first semester.  We will post grades in Powerschool.  If you would like a report card mailed to you, please let me know. Class schedules for second semester are in Powerschool and teachers are using the learning platform Canvas. Tomorrow, Monday, is a teacher workday. We will begin live instruction on Tuesday, January 5th. Please see our calendar on line for cohort information.  https://www.wcpss.net/site/default.aspx?DomainID=19

    Materials Drop-Off on Friday, 12/18/2020 from 8-2

    Regarding material drop off.  We will do it drive thru, so no need for kids to come inside. 
     
    The school board met last night and moved us to remote learning through the end of the first semester for traditional calendars, January 20. We need to do a materials drop off and had planned to do it after the break.  Now we need to do it this week.  I apologize for the late notice.  Please bring material back from this semester (books, etc.), in a drive thru format at North Wake.  We will have bins available. Please come between 8-2 on Friday, December 18. We look forward to seeing you and getting materials back to give students second semester. Please call with questions. 919-247-4353.

    Principal Message 12/6/2020


    This is a message from Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with information for the week.  

    The board voted last Tuesday to move North Wake into 2 cohorts for 11th and 12th grades.  11th and 12th grade students will come every other week.  This move was made because Wake Tech needed it to make their programs work. 9th and 10th grade students will still have three cohorts and will come one week out of every 3 weeks. We are working on making the cohort lists and will complete that by this Friday.  We need to balance the cohorts and work with transportation to ensure that there is bus availability. Please contact me if you have questions about the change.  

     The last day to order Spirit Wear is tomorrow-link is located on the school's main website. 

    Monday is also the last day to sign-up for Adopt a Family.  All products will need to be delivered Wednesday 12/9 during the assigned time of 10:00 -12:00 and 2-3 pm.  SGA and Beta Club are very thankful to everyone that have contributed. 


    We are also collecting gently used or new coats on the 12/9, please feel free to bring them also during the assigned time of 10:00 -12:00 and 2-3 pm. 

     Encourage your child to take an active role in their Google Meets by: 

    • Turning their camera on. This allows the teacher to create a better relationship with the student and also allows the teacher to pick up on student facial expressions that may signal a lack of understanding. The teachers will also be able to see if students are not focused and redirect them. Know that while you can require this, school staff will not do so in order to ensure your child’s comfort and privacy is maintained. 
    • Using the chat box productively by asking questions there when they are confused or need more elaboration. 
    • Attending question and answer sessions after the main Google Meet in order to solidify their understanding of a concept 


    Technology News: Is your Wake County Chromebook or hotspot broken? Is the screen cracked? Are the hinges loose? Are keys missing from the keyboard? Report these problems to the Student Help Desk at https://www.wcpss.net/domain/17256 or 919-694-8100 before Winter Break. This will give Technology Services more time to fix issues before students return in January. Most fixes are free! Call or submit your help request today! 

     Virtual Parent Summit: The National Center for Youth Issues is collaborating with WCPSS to connect with experts on how to manage the changes and challenges that Covid-19 has brought to our schools and families.

    Please see our grading policy below. We have a policy that encourages students to complete assignments but does have a time constraint.  

    The following are school-wide expectations for missed work:   

    • If the missed work is not related to absences, students will have up to three days to turn in the assignment. After a maximum of three days, the teacher will notify the parent/guardian of the missing assignment. Students will have three additional days after notifying parent/guardian to submit the work.   
    • Students will receive no late penalty for the assignment if submitted within the guidelines above.   
    • PowerSchool, by default, does not calculate missing work in the grade. Teachers will enter missed work as a zero throughout the quarter to indicate that it is missing. If the assignment is still missing after the six days (as outlined above), it will remain a zero in the gradebook.   
    • If an assignment is due within the last six days of a grading period, the end of the grading period (quarter or semester) is the deadline for submitting the work.  
    • Chronic missing and/or late work may result in disciplinary referral and/or consequences.  

    RESUBMISSION OF ASSIGNMENTS 

    • Students will be allowed to resubmit major assessments. They will be allowed one resubmission. Teachers will determine the timeframe in which it is allowed and whether whole, part, or an alternative resubmission will be required.   
    • Students must complete remediation and/or missing work (as designated by the teacher) before a resubmission can be done.   
    • For resubmissions, the higher grade will be recorded  
    • If a student earns below a 60 in the first quarter and then passes the second quarter and the final exam for the course, the teacher may go back and increase the first quarter grade to a 60 to calculate the final grade.

    North Wake College and Career Academy Grading Policies and Procedures  

     

    In the Wake County Public School System, we are committed to maintaining rigorous performance and achievement standards for all students and to providing a fair and consistent process for evaluating and reporting student progress that is understandable to students and their parents and relevant for instructional purposes.  

     

    At North Wake College and Career Academy, we believe that a grade is a numerical representation to measure the performance of a student’s achievement and mastery of standards. Their purpose is to communicate to all stakeholders a student’s level of understanding about established objectives.

    The following are district-wide expectations for homework:   

    • The teacher will introduce a concept or skill, thoroughly explain the concept or skill, and provide guided practice before making a related homework assignment.

      The following are school-wide expectations for homework:   
    • Should not exceed an average of 30 minutes per class each night;   
    • Aside from long-term projects, should not be scheduled during student breaks;   
    • All homework should receive feedback.   

        

       

      MISSED/ LATE WORK 

      The following are district-wide expectations for missed work:   
    • If the absence is approved in advance and/or if the work is assigned by the teacher in advance, all make-up work, including tests assigned for the day of return, is due upon the student's return to school. Teachers should use discretion and may make exceptions in the case of students whose excused absences were not planned in advance, were beyond the student' control, and the nature of which would not support make-up work the day of return   
    • If the make-up work has not been assigned in advance, for absences of one (1) to three (3) days, the student will have one day for each day absent. For absences exceeding three (3) days, the student may have two (2) days for each day absent to make up work. Special consideration will be given in the case of extended absences due to injury or chronic illness.   

        

      The following are school-wide expectations for missed work:   
    • If the missed work is not related to absences, students will have up to three days to turn in the assignment. After a maximum of three days, the teacher will notify the parent/guardian of the missing assignment. Students will have three additional days after notifying parent/guardian to submit the work.   
    • Students will receive no late penalty for the assignment if submitted within the guidelines above.   
    • PowerSchool, by default, does not calculate missing work in the grade. Teachers will enter missed work as a zero throughout the quarter to indicate that it is missing. If the assignment is still missing after the six days (as outlined above), it will remain a zero in the gradebook.   
    • If an assignment is due within the last six days of a grading period, the end of the grading period (quarter or semester) is the deadline for submitting the work.  
    • Chronic missing and/or late work may result in disciplinary referral and/or consequences.

    Student Online Behavior Expectations, Consequences, and Due Process 

    School is different this year, with students learning remotely outside of the controlled school environment. However, our behavioral expectations for online learning are the same as if students were on campus. While students are learning remotely, our virtual classrooms, online meetings, and work spaces are extensions of our school environment. We are committed to promoting positive student behavior by offering a broad range of supports, interventions, and consequences to address problem behaviors. Please review with your child our expectations for student behavior, consequences, and due process

     

     

    As always, please e-mail or call me (919-247-4353) with questions and for help. Again, I truly want to thank you for your work, flexibility, and communication during remote learning.  

     

    Principal Message 10/11/2020

    This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with announcements for the week.

     

    Asynchronous Wednesday: We will have an Asynchronous Learning Day on Wednesday, October 14. This will be an opportunity for students to work, on a flexible schedule, to catch up on outstanding Majors and Minors as well as taking a break from their computer screens. Teachers will use this time to offer office hours for students who need them and prepare instruction for the rest of the quarter. Families are asked, in preparation for Wednesday, to review HomeBase/Parent Portal and identify Majors and Minors that need to be done or revised and resubmitted. Students should prioritize Majors and then move to Minors. Please email your teachers if you need help or clarification. All students will need to check in to each teacher’s Google Classroom or Canvas site on Wednesday for updates and announcements. 

    Attendance: Attendance in a remote learning environment is designed to keep students engaged, to ensure they are on pace, and to offer academic and emotional support. Attendance is taken using the Power school system. A student is considered present if a student attends synchronous learning or if a student completes their daily assignments.  We will contact students and their parents if they miss three consecutive days.  

     

    We are mailing report cards for the first nine weeks.  If you do not receive a report card, please let us know. If you have questions about the report card, please contact your child’s teacher, counselor or administrator.  

     

    MINGLE MONDAY will  begin on Monday, September 14th.  Mingle Monday will be a weekly program offered to all 9th grade students and will begin at 11 am each Monday session. Mondays that we are not scheduled to be in school we will not meet. This will be a Google Meet Session, available to all 9th grade students, led by Ms. Kim Miller (Special Populations Coordinator, READY Coordinator, and Special Education Support Staff) and Mrs. Megan Walter (Dean of Students and 9th Grade School Counselor). The Google Meet Code will be shared with all 9th grade students via their WCPSS Student Email. The goal of this program is to better develop positive relationships with students, to help students get to know each other in safe/productive ways, and to provide support to students related to high school transition. **Students will help formulate the weekly topics based on information they will provide in a Google Form supplied to them on the 14th.

    We have had a great start to the school year, It has been a different start, but teachers are teaching, albeit online, and students are learning ,albeit remotely. I want to just take a moment to say thank you to our students, parents, and teachers.  Remote learning is difficult. We miss the positive, daily, immediate, interactions with each other. We miss the structure of bells and the free time of lunches. We miss group work and project based learning. And even with so much to miss, we have come together as a community, keeping students safe, loved, and learning. For that I am grateful.   Thank you.

    Principal Message 7/22/2020

    This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with information regarding NC plans A, B, and C.

    Wake County cannot open in Plan A, where all students return. There is simply not the space to socially distance and so is not safe.

    Wake County had planned to open in plan B, where students returned but in three week rotations that allowed for social distancing. Based on parent and teacher feedback and information regarding the spread of corona virus, Wake County has moved to a fully on line model until we can return to school safely. Our teachers will work with students, like we did in the spring, to provide on-line instruction. We will return to school when we can safely do so.

    During this period, Wake County has also created the Virtual Academy.  This is distinguished from Plan B remote learning. This Academy is designed for on-line instruction for students who know they do not want to return to school first semester or for the entire year. The application window for the Virtual Academy closed on Monday but will re-open from July 27 to July 29 to give parents the opportunity to apply who have not.  If you have already applied and would like to change your choice, please contact the school directly.  To help understand all the differences between WCPSS Virtual Academy and Plan A/B/C, view this comparison chart. 

    Wake County is committed to providing each child a device in order to work from home.  They will be sending out a survey to determine your device needs.  I will send a remind when the survey goes out, as well as an e-mail.

    It is a confusing time for us.  Circumstances change daily and we must react to them in a way that best meets the needs, learning and social emotional, of our students. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.  I have had a lot of phone calls and am glad for them.  Sometimes the answer is I don’t know.  But, I will find out.  Thank you for your support.  Thank you for your wonderful kids, We miss them. And we hope to see them soon.

    As always feel free to contact me via email text, or phone call (919-247-4353). I am happy to answer questions and provide support.

     

    Principal Message 7/18/2020

     

    This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy responses to our FAQ.

    I read today that WCPSS are going to have a second time to apply for virtual academy. Is that only if they opt for Plan C or will that be regardless? Thank you for taking the time to help everyone. We miss school!

     

    I am not sure. I think the second window to open for plan B will allow students who have opted for one semester or all year to change.

     

    So, is Virtual Academy not an option for the school? And, if not what is the protocol the school will follow for safety and prevention of the virus?

     

    Yes. We have a number of virtual academy students signed up  Students who are juniors in culinary, seniors in IT and EMT will need to complete lab hours. We are contacting parents directly to explain options.

     

    My daughter is a upcoming junior and is enrolled in business administration and I signed her up for virtual academy. So is she going to be able to take her wake tech classes?

     

    Yes.

     

    Do students who are going to take part in the Virtual Academy come in for orientation? Can the participate in this either way?

     

    I do not know at this time. I assume that id they are in the virtual academy they will not come to school for orientation.  If they would like to come in, we will welcome them.

     

    If it is my child's week to come to school, but she has a sore throat or is experiencing minor cold/allergy symptoms (without fever); to protect the student body from worry - will it be permissible for the student to continue working virtually on her "go to school" week?

     

    Yes. We will keep in contact with all students at all times.

     

    Alright to have more details on how the transportation is going and how this two days in the classes

     

    I don’t have more details.  When I do, I will share them.

     

    If you signed up for virtual academy can you go back to plan B? Since you sent out this information that does not go with her EMS program.

     

    We contacted each parent that needed to know about required lab hours for EMT and how they would be fulfilled. If you have not been contacted and have a question, please call me.

     

    Will it be possible for kids in CA with an IEP to come more often?

     

    We will insure that IEP requirements are met.  Please contact me or Ms. Lee for more questions or help.

     

    Will remote learning weeks be taught with the regular teachers just as if the students were in the classroom?

     

    No. Remote learning is different than in class learning. As a PBL school, we require a lot of collaboration that is not possible with a governor mandate of social distancing. Therefore, we will be more creative in our instruction. But, it will be different.

     

    Virtual School

    With the current status of using Plan B for schooling, most parents are having to get laptops for our children. Will the school be providing a link for Word or Microsoft applications, as this is not standard on new laptops? I think a link was provided when they first went to remote learning at the end of last school year. Thank you!

     

    I have cut and pasted your question to our information officer and our tech contact.  Please e-mail directly so I can respond.

     

    All students who are impacted by in person lab hours required by Wake Tech have been contacted directly by NWCCA.  If you have not been contacted then we are able to provide virtual schooling through Wake Tech.

     

     Thank you for taking my question! Our concern is if Wake County does as is being reported in the local media today and they go to plan C. Will NWCCA have to follow? Could we be allowed to continue with plan B instead given the small size of NWCCA? As both a Wake County parent and an educator, I have emailed the school system to voice serious concerns for having the county go into plan C. If we, as a family, were given the option to vote on the subject today, we would vote plan A with plan B as a backup :) Thank you again~

     

    We will follow the Wake County model.

     

    We miss you and can’t wait to see you when we return to school. As always feel free to contact me via email text, or phone call (919-247-4353). I am happy to answer questions and provide support.

     

    Principal Message 5/11/2020

    This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with announcements for the week.

    I want to just take a moment to say thank you to our students, parents, and teachers.  Remote learning has been difficult. We miss the positive, daily, immediate, interactions with each other. We miss the structure of bells and the free time of lunches. We miss group work and project based learning. And even with so much to miss, we have come together as a community. For that I am grateful.  We have two weeks left in year 2019-2020. We have much still to accomplish. Thank you.

    Thank you to our students and parents for their well-wishes for Teacher Appreciation week.  The response was wonderful. Please see the padlet for messages. https://padlet.com/ebattle1/xn2yp5lsudlxnk2

    The district will review SBOE guidelines and provide directions for schools. Once we have more information for what the guidelines mean for North Wake students and families, we will share them and their implications with our families. Current indications are that there will be no exams. That there will be no 4th quarter grade. 4th quarter work (remote learning)  will factor into the 3rd quarter grade, but only to raise it. Once we have final decisions from the district, we will share them.

    We encourage all students to remain engaged. The focus of remote learning will continue to be engagement and feedback while providing the flexibility families need. The final two weeks presents a wonderful opportunity to complete work and improve your third quarter, now final semester, grade. As always, email your student’s teachers, counselor, or administrator if you have questions.

    We will be monitoring attendance for online classes.  Students who do not attend will be contacted by our counselors to determine how we can help. We will hold classes until Thursday, May 21.

    Device and Technical Support - As you are working with your student, there are resources and support available for your family regarding how to log in and how to use specific digital tools. If you have a technology issue and need help, please contact the Student Help Desk at StudentTechHelp.wcpss.net or by phone weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 919-694-8100.

    For our SENIORS!  Cap and gown pick-up is Wednesday, May 13, from 12-3.  Please come to the school, park, and come to a table at the front entrance to receive your cap and gown. We will have lines on the pavement 6 feet apart for you to stand at. We will be wearing PPE equipment. We will collect textbooks at that time and provide you with property from your locker.  Also for seniors, please see a video of our seniors, compiled by Ms. Horton, on our website. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSIIva-KI90&feature=youtu.be

     

    SENIOR graduation! As a modified calendar school, we graduate first.  There are a few of us early colleges with graduations scheduled between May 20 and 22nd. At this time, those traditional graduations are cancelled.  We are working as a group to determine other options. Please stay tuned. We definitely want to celebrate your accomplishments but have to find a way to do so within the constraints of COVID 19. We will find a way.

     

    As always, please e-mail or call me (919-247-4353) with questions and for help. Again, I truly want to thank you for your work, flexibility, and communication during remote learning.

    This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with announcements for the week.

    Thursday and Friday presented us all with a great deal of information regarding the next steps for North Wake Collage and Career Academy and for all Wake County Public Schools. On Thursday, guidelines surrounding grading were presented by the State Board of Education. The district will review those guidelines and provide directions for the schools. Once we have more information for what the guidelines mean for North Wake students and families, we will share them and their implications with our families.

    Friday brought the announcement by Governor Cooper that school buildings would remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. NWCCA students and teachers will continue to learn and teach as we have since the start of school closure. We encourage all students to remain engaged. The focus of remote learning will continue to be engagement and feedback while providing the flexibility families need. Students need to use their Wake ID Portal and their WCPSS email to connect with learning and teachers. Not using the Wake ID Portal prevents students from accessing all parts of Remote Learning. Please ask your student to see the work being completed and the feedback being shared. As always, email your student’s teachers, counselor, or administrator if you have questions.

    North Carolina approved the distribution of additional resources to families receiving free or reduced-price lunch. The additional benefits will be through the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) to help families buy food during the COVID-19 school closure. Learn more about the P-EBT program on the NC DHHS website.

    We realize that many families’ economic and employment situations have changed during this pandemic. Families can apply at any time for free or reduced-price lunch, which may also qualify them for other state and federal benefits. Visit www.wcpss.net/meals to apply.

    Please see our schedule for classes on our website. We began classes on April 6. Students will meet for two classes a day and teachers will have office hours everyday at 1 pm.  

    We will be monitoring attendance for online classes.  Students who do not attend will be contacted by our counselors to determine how we can help.

    Students, if you are having any difficulty with remote learning, please let us know.

    I hope everyone had a nice spring break despite COVID-19.  

    The Governor has closed schools through March 27. We are to return March 30 unless he extends the closure.  

    You have received from Wake County a digital link to Remote Learning Resources.  It is also posted on our website.  This website is intended to provide instructional resources and extension activities that will help students remain engaged while school is closed. These are optional resources and activities and are not intended to be core instruction.

    Our teachers are back to work after spring break.  Please contact them via e-mail. Please remember that they too are working under the conditions of COVID-19 and so may not be available at all times.

    This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with a special announcement.

    We want to inform you of the methods we use to communicate with families.

    We do an e-mail message from school messenger on Sunday.  We no longer do a phone message as the county reserves phone messaging for county wide information.

    We do a remind message on Sunday night with weekly information and updates.

    We place the message on the school website on Monday, under principal’s message.

    In order to communicate effectively we need updated information.  If for some reason you have not been receiving these messages in the formats above, please contact us at 919-694-8650.

    Thank you and I hope you have a good day.
